Real Wedding: An Elegant Big Day in Somerset with Two Sassi Holford Outfits
The couple opted for a classy colour palette including rose gold, ivory and touch of pink that perfectly suited their autumn wedding.
Lauren decided to wear two outfits, beginning the day in a beautiful long-sleeved Sassi Holford wedding dress, before changing into a chic jumpsuit by the brand after the first dance.

The Somerset wedding venue
Nick and Lauren held their wedding day at <a href="https://www.hitched.co.uk/wedding-venues/brympton-devercy-house_2206.htm" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Brympton House</a>, Somerset.<br /><br />Their ceremony took place in the Castle House, the wedding breakfast in the ballroom and the reception in the stables.
The ceremony venue
"We chose Brympton House because we knew we didn't want a church wedding, but we wanted our ceremony space to have a similar character to that of a church," says Lauren.<br /><br />"We all fell in love with Castle House at Brympton as soon as we saw it."<br /><br />
The white wedding flowers
An in-house florist from the venue created the blooms for Nick and Lauren's wedding, using flowers including white astrantia, ranunculus, roses and various different foliages, including eucalyptus.
The wedding ceremony decorations
They also decorated the venue with countless candles, for a twinkling, magical feel.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/planning/venues/best-wedding-lighting-inspiration-on-pinterest/20421.html" target="_self">READ MORE: Best wedding lighting inspiration on Pinterest</a><br /><br /><br />
